    Hi guys I hope I haven't posted this in the wrong section - found a bag of these and was curious as to what they might be..

    Are they worthless? Am I rich? Do I tell my boss to go screw himself tomorrow, or is this like the time I met a spunky woman full of bling who ended up being nothing but the most wicked witch of the wild west of Melbourne?

    In all seriousness thanks in advance

    If that's your thing.

    I wouldn't be picky if the price is right

    Thanks for the replies - any further input would be appreciated as well

    Yes it's Thai.

    Silver colour with brass plug is 10 baht. 10 sided coins are 5 baht. Silver looking bottom centre is one baht. Brass looking ones are 2 baht. Small brass looking one above the bi-metal 10 baht is 50 satang (s'tung).

    100 satang to one baht. About 26 baht to one AUD. Probably 2-3 dollars there altogether.

    100% Thai and JulieW is about right in value. This is current in use currency today. It's pocket change someone has bought back from their holiday, cheers.

    Little silver one is noong 1 baht.
    Song 2 baht is the brass looking one
    And the bi metal one is sib 10 baht . Enough there to buy a nice cold beer in Thailand.
    Ohhhhh and forgot! The bigger silver one is ha 5 baht. :)

    So in Thailand if you get a text 555 it means ha ha ha funny. :D
